    For the money the amount of food is small. We waited 45 minutes for a burger. They served us our fries 20 minutes before the burgers. The wait was ridiculous when the restaurant wasn’t even a quarter full. Much better burger places in the city that are cheaper and better quality!!!

    Great burgers, but relatively limited menu and if someone didn't like truffle oil (and I don't) there was no regular ketchup option - Bar-B-Q sauce was good but not a great option for the fries! Service was outstanding! Open air environment was ok but a bit cool. Close to ATT Park was main driver for choosing and that worked great!

    Was alright, both food and service, but overpriced for what is basically a fast-food burger chain. Also plant-based/vegetarian options not marked at all.

    We had a large group and the waiter was the only one in the whole place yet he handled our table amazingly! We were all so impressed! I also especially appreciated that they not only had a vegan dinner option they also had a dessert option!

    Family stopped in for a quick burger after show had to ask the GrubHub driver to move from our table so we could sit down the place was so swarmed with delivery people with food all over the floor that the people in the restaurant were definitely second priority over the ones who placed online orders once we got our food which took forever I had to send mine back as it was not cooked the server was really nice but so busy he couldn’t get to us

    Very casual "sports bar" type of place. We went there for a late lunch before seeing a local show with our young granddaughter. The burgers were EXCELLENT and the service very friendly, relaxed and efficient. It is right across the street from the S.F. Giants' baseball stadium. As this was NOT a game day, it was very quiet - but I'm sure it's quite different when there is a game! We will definitely go back.

    Our greeter was rude and basically gave me the impression he didn’t want us as patrons. I was there with my sister, nephew and son. He was absolutely rude and snarled at us constantly. Our server was fine. But each time I looked up and saw him or he walks by, he would snarl at us yet he was extremely friendly to others. The burgers and fries were lack luster. I think the In n Out burger I had recently tasted better than that for a fraction of the price. Won’t be coming back again and will suggest others to do the same.

    The fish tacos were outstanding but the poke bowl was a big disappointment. We order poke bowls everywhere and this was just a big bowl of lettuce with a few pieces of poke in it. I would really recommend they make it more interesting and put more poke and more ingredients in it. I absolutely loved the fish tacos and would highly recommend them. I really like that they offer the impossible burger in both burger form and in the taco bowl. Next time I go I'll try the taco bowl with the impossible burger and definitely the fish tacos. Also, it was very noisy, I wish they had just turned the music down a little bit so it was easier to carry on a conversation.

    We used to love this place but they've changed their menu and got rid of the burgers we liked best. Plus, no more turkey burgers. On the day we visited, they were also entirely out of Impossible burgers and sweet potato fries. Don't expect we will go back.

    Receptionist was very helpful seating us at a better table than the original, and the waiter was very attentive at first, but seemed to be overwhelmed as crowds came in. We had to hurry to make a train, and had to leave the dessert on the table to catch the train due to a long wait for the check to arrive. Interesting food, but lacking something in presentation. Just a burger sitting alone on the plate seemed a little stark. Onion rings were good, but the ketchup had a strange flavor. Wasn't bad experience, maybe expected too much.

    The soda machine wasn’t working, out of tea And tots. Asked for appetizers to come with the meal and all three came out separately 10 minutes apart and before our meal. Burgers were cold and over cooked. Server was clearly overworked and didn’t bring items as asked (sugar, asked twice then I went to the bar to get). Dinner took almost 2 hours!

    Had high hopes, but they didn't have the brussel sprouts on the menu, we never got the beet salad we ordered and we waited over 40 minutes for a couple of burgers. Was hoping a great burger, it was under cooked and nothing special. No love went in to the finished product. Why spend $50 for something I can do better for $10
